Expo Gate, the first Infopoint of the Milan World Expo


Expo Gate is the winning project of the design competition for the Infopoint of Expo Milano 2015. To announce the winner's name, this afternoon at the Triennale in Milan, the mayor and Special Commissioner for Expo Milano 2015 Giuliano Pisapia, the president of the Triennale Claudio De Albertis and the CEO of the Expo 2015 Company Giuseppe Sala.

Appreciated for the harmony with which joins the monumental system of the Sforza Castle, Expo Gate, proposed by Scandurrastudio, will be the first “information center” of the Milan World Expo, access door to the opportunities and challenges posed by the theme “Feeding the Planet. Energy for Life”.

The Infopoint will be located in Largo Cairoli (via Beltrami), and it will be a meeting point and a place where hold happenings and find news on this important international event.

There were 25 architectural firms who participated at the contest for designing the temporary pavilion of the Infopoint 2015, open by Triennale Milano on behalf of the Expo 2015 Company. The proposals were evaluated by a jury composed by Claudio De Albertis, President of the Triennale di Milano, Alberto Artioli, Superintendent of the Architectural Heritage and Landscape, Ferruccio de Bortoli, director of the Corriere della Sera, Elio Fiorucci, Designer, Vittorio Gregotti, Architect Daniela Volpi, President Order of Architects of Milan, and Giuseppe Sala, CEO of Expo 2015 Company.


Jury statement

Light and transparent, the pavilions are inserted into the urban fabric in a discreet way transmitting a high symbolic value, respecting the visual telescope of Castello Sforzesco-Cordusio and rearranging public space in a vital way.

The construction system proposed , based on elementary technologies, is relatively simple and it is interesting both form the side of sustainability, economy and the speed of its implementation.

A formal and structural invention, a celebratory and representative artwork, because, as Gio Ponti wrote “The representativity must be alive, full of imagination, recognizable in the component parts of architecture. The representativity characterizes the construction carrying it with wisdom to the universal understanding, to that communication which is one of the terms of the existence of the art”.

fective, the communication skills of the device information are also evaluated.


Extract from the project report by Scandurrastudio

It is a place where counting the days before the opening of the World Expo is an opportunity to talk about growth and evolution. The calendar of events, the periodic change of space and facilities prelude to the vitality of Expo 2015.

The project proposes a plate open, characterized by a central square and two pavilions “Toolgates” to the side. A gateway to the Expo. Expo announces itself to the world, with a device that builds space and places, transformable and adaptable without it losing its strong identity.

The outside structures are designed to accommodate different types of communication, images, banners, flags, bright graphics can transform themselves periodically or build a temporality establishing differently over time. This device will be constantly changing, the functions inside the pavilions will be set giving a hierarchy to the spaces. At the center of the buildings, an empty space will be the place of more direct information. The work is intended to confirm the urban nineteenth century layout and recall in a clear manner the punctiform system of small monumental architecture starting around the Castle and the Sempione Park, which has always had an exhibiting vocation. The work aims to confirm the axial system of public spaces, that goes from the Cathedral through the passage between the Loggia dei Mercanti and the Palazzo della Ragione and then along Via Dante and leads to the Arco della Pace, in the path of the main road of the Sempione. A gateway to the Expo which is also is a physical and information place. The flexibility and transparency of the work identifies the possibility of new and more direct communications systems and equipment, two large sails screen will support continuous transmission of information in real time, the void at the center, the square supported by the buildings’ exterior and the open plan makes extremely adaptable the utilization of the proposed spaces. The activities hosted inside the pavilions are divided from the public space outside by windows which leave them visible.

A great communication machine, constantly in movement, which will be always lit by work and by images and information.

The work will be carried out according to the principles of lightness, transparency, modularity, features leading to pursue a language of large reticulated and aerial volumes. An aesthetic of lightness invoking Eiffel’s structures and the subsequent research on the expressiveness of the lightness not only from the forms but also in terms of environmental impact.

I didn't bother to read that wall of text, so the answer to this questions may be hidden there: But are those things going to be permanent or are they just meant to be temporary during expo?

I read the Italian newspaper and it says it's temporary, from 7th December 2013 until the end of 2015.


Here you can find some pictures of the other contestants http://milano.corriere.it/gallery/mi...0dd56b.shtml#1

I think the "least bad" has won, only because it doesn't hide the tower of the Castle, and I'm OK with it only because I know it won't last forever

There isn't a strong landmark like Eiffel Tower but some buildings are certainly permanent:

- Italian Pavilion
- Lake Arena
- Mediterranean Hill
- Expo Theater
- Expo Center
- Expo Bridge

And maybe something more...

the conceptualization for the vietnam pavillion for milano's 2015 expo by H&P architects mixes settled agriculture to create a sustainably functioning space. the building is conceived from steel structural frames (which have a numerous of modules – the longest being 7.5m) that are connected by simple joins or overlapping. the framing system is covered by salvaged wood to reduce the cost. the design has multiple functions: force resistance, planter, space for exhibits/furnishings, technical use – water, electricity supply and escape. the field covering the building helps condition the micro-climate, providing food for both interior and exterior.
